An influential figure in the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Northern Region and former Chief Executive Officer of the Northern Development Authority, Dr. Suleimana Anamzoya Alhassan has declared his support for Hon. Kennedy Agypong for the flagbearership position.
Dr. Anamzoya’s decision has been welcomed by the rank and file of the support base in the region.
Some leading members of the party in Tamale noted that the choice of the former CEO is right because the candidate has all the credentials to lead the party in the 2024 general elections.
Dr. Anamzoya is a senior lecturer at the Department of Sociology at the University of Ghana and was appointed by President Akufo-Addo in 2019 as the CEO of the NDA.
As CEO, Dr Anamzoya introduced many innovations and creative approaches in the management of the NDA, which has seen a massive improvement in the Authority in terms of development projects in its operational areas.
Dr Anamzoya also succeeded in uniting the staff of the NDA which hitherto was an old versus new staff conundrum.
So far, about seven stalwarts of the party including Vice President Alhaji Mahamudu Bawumia have shown interest to lead the ruling party when nominations are opened.
